Trial challenging DeSantis' ouster of Hillsborough state attorney starts Tuesday

A federal judge will soon determine if Gov. Ron DeSantis overstepped his authority when he removed a Florida prosecutor in August. Ousted Hillsborough state attorney Andrew Warren’s trial challenging his suspension begins in Tallahassee on Tuesday. The gavel drops in Florida Northern District Court at 9:00 a.m. Judge Robert Hinkle— a Clinton appointee— is set to hear arguments for an estimated three to five days. His decision will then determine if the governor’s ouster crossed the line, potentially putting Warren back in his elected post.
